3 The discussion paper offers 9 Principles and 16 ideas as a conversation starter for planning the future of metropolitan Melbourne. 3

4 A metropolitan framework for jobs - more jobs in the suburbs Addressing the growing inequities between the central and inner suburbs and the outer and growth areas Linking social and economic participation to productivity A focus on access and equity: increasing “life chances” Implementing a pipeline of hard and soft infrastructure with funding Building our next generation of civic projects e.g. more boulevards Establishing health &well being and life learning education precincts Putting buses on the PT agenda as a priority Unlocking the capacity of the established suburbs What is different about this proposed strategy? 4

5 Principle 1: A distinctive Melbourne Principle 2: A globally connected and competitive city Principle 3: Social and economic participation Principle 4: Strong communities Principle 5: Environmental resilience What we want to achieve 5

6 Principle 6: A polycentric city linked to regional cities Principle 7: Living locally – a ‘20 minute’ city What needs to change 6

7 Principle 8: Infrastructure investment that supports city growth Principle 9: Leadership and partnership Making it happen 7

8 Increasing job densities and expanding types of jobs Nationally Significant Innovation and Employment Clusters (e.g. Monash cluster), west? and north? – Reduce cross city commute, increase productivity levels and reduce greenhouse emissions. 20 minute city concept – live and work locally. Access is really important - Buses and more buses, walking and cycling. More jobs in the suburbs 8

9 Brownfield and Greyfield sites – how to make productive? Criteria for the identifying suitable sites and precincts for urban renewal and urban infill What planning mechanisms can we apply to facilitate mixed use development in locations where we want it to occur? Urban amenity and the importance of place making in all new development. Urban Renewal Precincts and Urban Infill Sites 9

10 Delivering diverse housing in the right locations at a reasonable price End of life housing stock Downsizing to smaller dwellings – incentives? Unlocking the capacity of established suburbs so that young and old can live in these areas? More social housing How can we get $100,000 off the cost of construction of a 3 bedroom dwelling in the middle suburbs? Housing choice to match your budget 10

11 Social sustainability – about people’s quality of life now and in the future. Create neighbourhoods that support individual and collective well-being Education and Health precincts – metropolitan, regional and local scales Make our neighbourhoods better places to live and work How can we accommodate different types of housing to enable people to age in their local area? Greening our suburbs Strong, healthy and inclusive communities Vulnerability Assessment for Mortgage, Petrol and Inflation Risks and Expenditure (VAMPIRE index) Source: Dodson & Sipe 2008 based on 2006 Census 11

12 Is it time to set in stone an Urban Growth Boundary? If so where do we accommodate additional people, jobs and facilities? Enhance the environmental qualities of the peri urban fringe? The role for more food production and tourist related opportunities outside the UGB and still retain a ‘green’ setting? Plans for each “Green” wedge Green edge to the metropolis 12

13 Integrated approach from Govt, investors, A new SPPF with the Strategy A new metropolitan planning authority. What? Who? Role of regional partnerships Opportunities for neighbourhood planning groups Incentives and rewards to facilitate the implementation of the MPS? Intergovernmental agreements to deliver the MPS? Implementing the MPS – perhaps our biggest challenge 13

14 Set priorities, timelines and put processes in place to deliver the hard and soft infrastructure – can we do this at the regional level? How are we going to pay for the infrastructure to maintain our city’s liveability, support its economic prosperity and enhance our social well- being? How can we share the cost of providing such infrastructure as well as share the benefits of growth in a fair and equitable way? Financing and Funding 14
